Joe Kenda was an extremely successful Homicide Detective for the Colorado Springs, CO Police Dept. He explores his old cases through reenactment and gives insights into his thought process along the way. This is a show that shows the logic process that a good detective uses from the beginning of a case through to the end.Written by
Many re-enactment scenes for Homicide Hunter are shot on location in Knoxville, TN using real Knoxville Police Department officers standing in as actors. The vehicles, weapons, and equipment are the ones used by the Knoxville PD, but with "Colorado Springs" placed over the name. See more »
In the opening montage, Lt. Kenda slips his automatic into its holster, but the hammer is cocked. - For an officer, that gun is supposed to be cocked when it's holstered. The error is you can see the safety is not engaged when the gun is holstered. See more »
I'm a bit of a true crime fan anyway and Lt. Joe Kenda is absolutely my cuppa tea.
I love the droll manner in which he comments on the crime or more often the criminal(s). Lt. Kenda is who makes this show what it is - it would just be another whodunnit without him. He has such an entertaining personality - absolutely riveting.
I always make a point of watching whenever I see this show listed on the ID Channel.
For those who have not seen this show, I highly recommend it. Lt. Kenda is an older gentleman who does the commenting and narrative bits while a younger actor portrays him in the scenes.
While the crime is shown, it is not generally overly graphic.
Lt. Kenda has investigated over 400 homicides during his career and he knows how criminals' minds work. He knows all the "tells" when they're lying and exactly how to draw them out and get the truth of what really happened.
10 stars for Lt. Kenda Homicide Hunter!
